aire du temps



property description:


Welcome to Aire du temps!

* A friendly spot in the French Hautes-Pyrénées (65), not very far from ski-resorts and the Val d´Aran in Spain.

* A gîte, a small ecological camp site (for 6 tents max.) and some guest rooms, with a fine breakfast (organic).

* For nature lovers and peace seekers, who appreciate small things in life (so do we).

* Peace and quiet, grand view at the Pyrenees (Cap de Pony de Hourmigué, Pic du Gar, Pic de Bacanère, Mont Aspet, Montludo).

* Scenic routes for walking and cycling. Rafting, fishing, paragliding, ski-ing, crosscountry ski-ing...

* Only 4 km. from here: the Chemin du Piémont des Pyrénées (to Santiago de Compostella).

* Day trips to Cathar country, Lourdes, Toulouse, the cathedral of Saint Bertrand de Comminges, the prehistoric caves of Gargas...

* Regional cheese, honey and apple juice du terroir from one of the farms in the Barousse valley.

* On request: workshop How to prepare sushi (Leuntje´s specialty).

* No tv, but (wireless) internet all right.

* Many translations of 'The little prince', written by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry - the perfect literature for a lazy afternoon in the garden or a winter evening next to the fire place.

* Public transport: bus stop (Bagiry) only 1 km. from here. Train station (Saléchan-Siradan) at 2 km. Take the night train in Paris-Austerlitz (22.56h) and join us for breakfast the next morning.
